of a truth in history. if you can actually identify somebody and take that person's religion, as it were, adopt it and -- the holy roman empire under constantine did what anyone would do. they take a narrative that appeals to them and apply it to their situation. i am not aware of any other inup of people who go so far opposition to who they are and what they look like, but we swallowed it wholesale. >> is a brainwashing or conditioning? a certain amount of brainwashing thinking we cannot be capable of divinity, redemption, or being a conduit thereof, but i think we have been conditioned to think of ourselves as lesser because we cannot identify that image. that image is really important, ,he man with the flowing robes blonde hair, blue eyes, looked absolutely -- if you go there today, nobody looks like that. and that was a time pre-era, so even more he would have looked african, ethiopian. constantine in particular, took that story and made the image into themselves, and then the holy roman empire went about conquering the rest of the world, and they took this image of the holy savior,

a bill that set off a national debate over gay rights, religion and discrimination and subjected the state to blistering criticism from major corporations and political leaders from both parties. brewer's decision defused a national furor over gay rights and religious freedom. the bill backed by republicans in the state legislature was designed to give added protection from lawsuits to people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. but opponents called it an open attack on gays that invited discrimination. the bill thrust arizona into the national spotlight last week after both chambers of the legislature approved it. thousands of pages of previously confidential documents from the clinton administration are set to be released soon. that's according to the national archives. the documents describe communications between bill clinton and his advisers. and potentially his wife, hillary. some of the records pertain to the former president's appointments to federal office. there's no specific date set for their release. a judge is preparing to set a third new

provides that, quote, government shall not substantially burden a person's exercise of religion explicitly expanding that protection to allow businesses to cite a violation of their own religious beliefs as a defense if they're sued for failing to provide service. the bill was inspired by a new mexico supreme court ruling against a wedding photographer who refused service to a same-sex couple, and it massed quickly through the very conservative-controlled state legislature in arizona last week. in the last few days, pressure on brewer to veto the bill has grown from almost every corner. the arizona story crossed the threshold from political feeding frenzy into the mainstream. it was showing up on every platform yesterday, from espn to late-night talk shows. and though brewer claimed she was not influenced by cheers and boos from the crowd, it was clear from the outset that her state, whose reputation has already been tarnished over the years in the wake of the state's 2010 immigration law, had a lot to lose. on wednesday, the nfl, quote, began investigating the necessary steps to move next

religion if they didn't want to -- in particular if they didn't want to serve a customer. but the laws were not so specific as to say, well, you don't have to serve a gay person. they were just stating that you could cite religion as a reason not to do so in a court proceeding. now, whether or not they're a backlash to same-sex marriage, it's obvious the changes were proposed for that reason because that's what the legislators said that they were concerned about. i don't think it's going to do anything to stem the tide of support for same-sex marriage or for gay rights generally. >> adam, thank you. >>> up next, the "brain trust," spike lee, this is msnbc. suddee a mouthbreather. well, put on a breathe right strip and instantly open your nose up to 38% more than cold medicines alone. so you can breathe and sleep. shut your mouth and sleep right. breathe right. so you can breathe and sleep.

[ chants ] >> veto! >> reporter: since the arizona legislature passed the bill last week, there have been almost daily protests. [ chants ] >> shame on you! >> reporter: it's all part of a tidal wave of opposition to the proposed state lay which would make it easier for businesses because of their religious beliefs, to deny service against gays and lesbians. supporters say the law is designed to protect religious freedom, especially for small businesses like wedding photographers and bakeries that may have religious objections to same-sex marriages. k cathi harrod helped
